The History

When Black Iris moved to Broad Street we saw great potential in the space- an opportunity to join the Arts District in offering our unique take on activities and performances to the thriving Arts scene already being advanced by our neighbors. It quickly developed its own identity as a collaborative workspace. It became a laboratory of sorts. After hearing from our community that this was something they valued and wanted to support, we thought, “Why not create a club that fosters this idea? A space more of us can call our own?” And so we worked behind the scenes for a few years creating that space. A place to relax after work. A place where performances can happen spontaneously and unexpectedly throughout the week. A community cultivated and grown through its own constituency.


Black Iris Social Club is that idea come to life- a gathering place for artists, thinkers, friends, tinkerers, advocates, enthusiasts, and all who seek to share their experiences with others. And we’ve built it to be entirely different from that uptight, old school idea of a social club that one may imagine. We’d like you to relax and let your hair down. No dress codes here. Members have the benefit of enjoying our 5,000+ square feet of club space for a variety of activities, including performances, exhibitions, games, libations, good conversation, and a few pleasant surprises along the way. Our facility, located in the heart of the Arts District in downtown Richmond, boasts a full service bar for you and your guests.
